Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a voluntary process of discussion on future care preferences between an individual, his or her family and healthcare providers.

It is a conversation that includes:

  • Sharing your personal values, beliefs and goals for care with your loved ones and healthcare providers.
  • Exploring your healthcare preferences in difficult medical situations, which could include circumstances at the end-of-life.
  • Appointing a Nominated Healthcare Spokesperson (NHS) to represent your voice and make your preferred medical decision should you be unable to speak for yourself one day.
